Burmeister History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The history of the Burmeister family begins almost a millennium ago, in the northern German region of Schleswig-Holstein, where the family name first emerged. The name Burmeister is derived from the German words "bur" or "bauer," meaning "farmer," and "meister," meaning "master;" thus, the name literally means "master farmer." Alternatively, the Low German term "Burmester" refers to the town elder who held the position just below that of the mayor. From this source, the original bearer of the name Burmeister was likely the master of an estate or a prominent figure in his village.

Early Origins of the Burmeister family
